Area businesses promote 2019 Route 1 Road Trip


CHRISMAN – Chrisman businesses Hidden Garden, Callie’s Corner and American Country Collection are partnering with other businesses for the Route 1 Road Trip Sept. 20 and 21.

The event features 10 small businesses between Danville and Chrisman for this shop-hop event.

Customers may start anywhere and will receive a map at the first stop. The map gets authorized at each subsequent stop indicating visits to the different businesses. The maps are left at whichever business happens to be the last stop and that will vary by customer.

Participating businesses will pool all of the maps at the end of the two-day event and draw one winner. The single prize is a $25 gift certificate from each of the 10 businesses, making a $250 prize to the winner.

The 10 businesses involved are located on or near state Route 1 from Danville to Chrisman.

-Mad Goat Coffee – Tilton (coffee and breakfast).
